Exploring Brecht

These are two lesson plans here which I’ve presented as a worksheet to hand out to students as well. Ideally focused towards students taking GCSE, they explore and explain two of Brecht’s more difficult concepts to explain and understand,Distancing and Empathy. Both activities present them using material the students create themselves and allow the students to see the effect of the techniques on the audience for themselves. They are completely open to differentiation or to reframing to be about a particular social commentary or play text you are exploring with your class.
